I got a booster brick of the new Bigby Presents Glory of the Giants minis by WizKids. Let’s take a look at what you can get!
You can buy these bricks of 8 booster boxes from WizKids and retailers as well. They also come in single boosters, which you should also be able to find at retailers individually for about $25 each.
Thanks to WizKids for the opportunity to check the latest Icons of the Realm minis out. Below is a video of the unboxing. If you prefer, you can keep reading as well.
A Closer Look at the D&D Glory of the Giants Minis
When I opened these boxes, I was blown back by the quality of the paint jobs on these miniatures. I was not expecting that from blind-buy miniatures. Don’t just take my word for this quality, though; check out the quality of this Death Giant!
I was really hoping for this miniature above, and it looks incredible! Let’s look at another one of those giants.
That one is really cool! This next one is neat too.
I could tell that someone took a lot of care to paint these giants well. The smaller miniatures in the sets also look good. Check out this figure.
For a miniature ready to go right out of the box, they are pretty good.
Breaking Down Each Blind Box – Bigby Presents Glory of the Giants
Having shown you the quality of the miniatures, let me show you what came in each box.
As you can see, these miniatures come in groups of four with three small or medium miniatures and one huge one. I did get a couple of duplicates, but that happens.
You can see that the giant in the two sets above are duplicates. That said, I did not open them in the order presented here. If you watch the video, you will see all the minis in the exact order that I opened them.
That’s a nice collection of miniatures.
I plan to use these miniatures in games like Frostgrave by Osprey Games, where you can use any miniatures that you want. If you have a similar mindset, you might want to see how these giants compare to an Age of Sigmar miniature.
The unpainted miniatures in the photo above are from the left: a Wargames Atlantic Conquistador miniature and a WizKids unpainted D&D miniature on the right. I am sure you can pick out the Age of Sigmar miniature on your own.
The Wargames Atlantic and Age of Sigmar miniatures make an appearance again in the image above. That Giant Necromancer in the middle is an incredible premium miniature related to the Glory of the Giants miniatures set. I have a quick review video of it below.
Wrapping it up…
Unboxing these WizKids Dungeons and Dragons Booster packs of miniatures was an absolute thrill. There is something exciting about opening a box when you are not 100% sure what you are going to get.
I enjoy collecting miniatures of all sorts, and I was very impressed with how well these figures were painted. Especially the Giants. If you want to get these yourself, look for the Bigby Presents Glory of the Giants Booster Packs for Dungeons and Dragons by WizKids.
These duplicates went to a friend of mine who plans to use them as proxy troll miniatures for his Orc and Goblin armies for a variety of games. The other duplicates will remain in my collection as I like their look.
Have you unboxed any of these miniatures? What did you get in your booster boxes or bricks?
Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
